NFL Week 12 starts today; however, if you want to bet on the early NFL Week 13 odds, 5Dimes has you covered. First Week 13 offers a full slate of games with no more bye-weeks for the first time since Week 3.

Early NFL Week 13 Odds

Thursday, November 28

Chicago at Detroit -2½
at 12:30 PM ET
TV: FOX

The Lions will be looking for revenge for their 20-13 Week 10 road loss to the Bears, and I’d say they’d get it if Matthew Stafford was starting this game. However, with Detroit’s franchise signal-caller out of the lineup with fractures in his back, I expect Chicago’s defense to harass Jeff Driskel to get the big road win and narrow cover!

Buffalo at Dallas -7
at 4:30 PM ET
TV: CBS

The Bills have won four of five on the road this season while Dallas has gone 3-2 at home. Both teams have excellent defenses in this inter-conference clash. Still, the Cowboys have the edge at quarterback and every other skill position on the offensive side of the ball. Still, the Bills take this one down to the final possession or two in an affair that looks like a classic field goal contest waiting to happen.

New Orleans at Atlanta +5½
at 8:20 PM ET
TV: NBC

The Saints will be out for revenge after getting smacked around in their stunning 26-9 Week 10 home loss against Atlanta. Drew Brees and company are the pick to get the straight-up road win. Still, I like Matt Ryan and Atlanta’s suddenly stingy defense to turn this one into an all-out street brawl if they continue playing the way they have the last few weeks.

Sunday, December 1

Green Bay at NY Giants +7½
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

School will be in session as Aaron Rodgers shows rookie Giants signal-caller Daniel Jones how its done while leading the Packers to an emphatic win in a contest that should be over by halftime.

Washington at Carolina -8½
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

With Carolina getting held to 16 points or less three times since Week 8, the honeymoon looks like its over for Kyle Allen in Carolina. Still, the Redskins are so utterly dysfunctional at this point of the season, it will be a minor miracle if Washington makes this Week 13 matchup a competitive contest.

San Francisco at Baltimore -4½
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

The Niners have narrowly avoided a loss against elusive rookie Kyler Murray twice this season. Still, they did fall to Russell Wilson a couple of weeks back, and I believe their stout defense is in for more trouble against the blossoming Lamar Jackson, who, by the way, is clearly better than Frisco’s Jimmy Garoppolo.

Tennessee at Indianapolis -4
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

Tennessee is finding life under Ryan Tannehill a bit better than it was under Marcus Mariota. Still, neither signal-caller is as god as Indy’s Jacoby Brissett and Colts head coach Frank Reich has a massive edge over Mike Vrabel in this AFC South rivalry. Indianapolis takes care of business at home to give their playoff hopes a boost!

Philadelphia at Miami +7½
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

The Birds haven’t been playing their best football recently. Still, the Birds are desperate to reach the playoffs, and they are far more talented on both sides of the ball than the rebuilding Dolphins. Miami needs to lose every game from here on in if they want to have a shot at the top pick in next year’s NFL draft. I smell a huge blowout looming!

Oakland at Kansas City -9
at 4:25 PM ET
TV: CBS

The Raiders have been one of the most pleasant surprises in the league so far this season, mostly because they’ve found out that rookie running back Josh Jacobs is way better than anyone could have imagined. Still, though, the Chiefs are playing at home and looking to increase their chances of getting a high seed in the AFC playoffs. After spanking their division rivals in Week 2, Kansas City completes the regular-season sweep.

Tampa Bay at Jacksonville -4½
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

Veteran quarterback Nick Foles is back under center. Still, I think the Jags are going to miss the overachieving ways of rookie signal-caller Gardner Minshew. Still, Jacksonville looks solid at home, mostly because Tampa Bay’s soon-to-be, former starter, Jameis Winston can’t stop throwing passes to the other team.

NY Jets at Cincinnati +3
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

Could the lowly Bengals get a win here at home against the disappointing Jets? Nope, not as long as Ryan Finley is calling the shots in Cincinnati. The strong-armed Sam Darnold outplays his mediocre Week 13 counterpart to lead the J-E-T-S to the solid road win.

LA Rams at Arizona +4
at 4:05 PM ET
TV: FOX

The Rams just don’t look like the same team they’ve been the last couple of years and maybe it’s because everyone has finally caught up to Sean McVay’s offensive scheme. Maybe it’s me, but I’m thinking L.A. is in trouble in this road date against the clearly gifted Kyler Murray and an Arizona Cardinals team that has been surprisingly competitive all season long.

LA Chargers at Denver PK
at 4:25 PM ET
TV: CBS

Philip Rivers and the Bolts have been at their underachieving best this season. Still, Denver’s offense is borderline pathetic, even though they’ve taken a step in the right direction by apparently moving on from virtually washed-up veteran Joe Flacco.

Cleveland at Pittsburgh -2½
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

Fight, fight, fight! Forgive me for my lapse back into my instigating middle school ways, but I’m thinking the Steelers are going to punch the Browns in the mouth from the outset in Week 13. Pittsburgh will be looking to exact some revenge for their now, infamous 21-7 road loss against Cleveland, and I believe they’ll get it.

New England at Houston +4½
at 8:20 PM ET
TV: NBC

While the Texans have an unadulterated star in young quarterback Deshaun Watson, Houston has been wildly inconsistent all season long. Unfortunately, that’s a bad recipe for success against Tom Brady and Bill Belichick, even at home.

Monday, December 2

Minnesota at Seattle -3
at 8:15 PM ET
TV: ESPN

The final game on the Week 13 docket features two teams with fantastic defenses. The bad news for the Vikings, however, is that Kirk Cousins doesn’t come close to measuring up against Seattle’s Russell Wilson. That and the fact that Seattle is playing at home should spell doom for Minnesota!
